U.S., Mexico, & Canada to Host 2026 World Cup

14 Juin, 2018, 18:29 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The United States, Mexico and Canada will host soccer's biggest event in 2026.

But fear not, for that endurance test was followed in 1990 by one of the most astonishing games in World Cup history, Cameroon's 1-0 victory over holders Argentina at San Siro by virtue of Francois Omam-Biyik's victor and such extraordinary reckless tackling and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm that left several world champions sporting saucer-sized bruises and two Cameroon players with red cards.

The 2018 World Cup opening match and final will be played in Moscow at the Luzhniki stadium.

This was the first World Cup vote since 2010, when USA and Switzerland investigators unveiled corruption on an unprecedented scale afterwards. And, referencing track one, side one of that very LP, "you don't know how lucky you are boys*' ..."

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026".

Chief among those is US President Donald Trump, whose "America First" approach might score well with his electoral base but may have made the United bid's task harder than it could ever have imagined. "Congratulations - a great deal of hard work!"

Morocco has largely avoided competing with the North Americans in a dash for cash.

Fifa's president, Gianni Infantino, looked opportunistically quick to immediately put himself forward for re-election next year, and he was followed by U.S. president Donald Trump with a self-congratulatory tweet.

Portland was not chosen as one of the finalists to host World Cup matches.

The Football Association has not hosted the tournament since 1966, having failed in bids for the 1990, 2006 and 2018 tournaments.

Just to add to the complexity, there was a third option for all voters: neither Morocco or United and we would have had to start a new bidding process.
